"But theatre that goes beyond narrative looks into ideas."
Your dichotomy between ideas and narrative is false. By your reasoning "King Lear" would be absent of ideas: it has a narrative and is based on a very old story, a story that was old even in Shakespeare's time. "The Sandbox" and "The Bald Soprano" are both great plays, but they do not somehow have "more ideas" because they do not have traditional narratives. Withdrawing the narrative does not instill "ideas" in a play, and a play with a narrative does not make ideas recede. It's a mistaken notion imho.
